Doctors Confess the 23 Most Annoying Things Patients Do


Going to the doctor’s office, for most people, is like stubbing your big toe over and over while listening to someone filing their nails at the DMV — wait time: FOREVER. It’s not the most enjoyable experience, but we must deal with it or die.

Usually we’re sick and broken and leaking bodily fluids and we want to just get in and out as quick as possible with the right meds and not too much shame or embarrassment. Being a patient sucks, but we have to remember that doctors and medical professionals have to deal with our annoying bullsh*t day in and day out.

You think your high blood pressure sucks? Just ask doc over there how she feels about the condescending pr*ck that thinks his WebMD diagnosis trumps her three medical degrees.
